Romance isn't dead, and we have Patrick Martin to thank for that. The Los Angeles-via-Wisconsin singer/songwriter's debut single, ‘Cinema Love,’ is a picture-perfect evocation of new love's impossible pleasures — a skyscraping pop song that doubles as a first taste of Martin's debut album, due later this year. Born and raised in Saukville, WI, Martin was introduced to music by his mom at an early age, with classic-rock staples like the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, the Allman Brothers, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young on regular rotation. Inspired to learn guitar by an older cousin, he practiced and played for years and eventually started dabbling in his own songcraft around the age of 16. Later, while attending Marquette University, a relationship during his sophomore year sparked a desire to write and play music on a broader scale. A semester studying abroad in London further encouraged him to pursue music full-time, and soon after, Martin moved to Los Angeles, working on his music in between shifts at the Apple Store. Guided by his manager’s experience, Martin eventually crafted his debut single, ‘Cinema Love,’ which was co-produced by longtime collaborator Jesse Mason. ‘Cinema Love’ is an expression of the emotion felt from one of Martin’s own most memorable relationships, and it encapsulates the belief that real love can be as epic as it feels in the greatest romantic films of all time.
